Pastor’s Corner – Fall 2011
Praise the Lord Saints of God
We know that we are in a spiritual battle. Each and every day we when we get up we face fierce oppression from the enemy of our soul, Satan. The Word of God tells us that Satan has come to wear the Saints of God down. That’s his job. Satan wants us to get so tired, so depressed, so disappointed and so discouraged in our walk with the Lord that we neglect to praise and worship God just for who He is.
Remember, Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy. He only wants to steal your relationship with our Heavenly Father. Put a stop to him today. Walk in the authority that Jesus has given you. Get in the Word of God and know who you are in Christ Jesus. Remember our only job is to fight the good fight of faith.
How does faith come? Faith comes by hearing and hearing The Word of God. Make reading and understanding The Word of God a priority in your life. Do not let the situation that you are going through determine your joy or your future. The Joy of the Lord is your strength and God has determined your future. He has a plan of good success for you (Jeremiah 29:11). Keep your focus on The Almighty God and keep your heart and hands clean. Be holy for God is Holy. The road to destruction is wide but the road to life – to The Father through Christ Jesus – is strait and narrow. Choose the narrow road today.
Remember there is an enemy who does not want you to prosper: spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally or financially. There is a struggle not made easy; there are demons. But the Word tells us to “Submit yourself to God, resist the devil and he will flee”. Give no place to the devil; no weapon formed against you will prosper. VICTORY IS OURS!!!
God Bless and keep you always,
Pastor E. Ann Scott
